Let me start off by saying this used to be my favorite lift, but has slowly started becoming more annoying. Also, I’ve become very weak in this lift and it seems I’m going backwards.
Currrently I’m doing:
235x (as many as I can)
Some days I’ll vary in heavy leg press over front squat to get more posterior change work and others front squat for quads.
The problem is I’ve tried doing more rep work (best plan is something you haven’t done in a while), but it seems that every time I do that heavy weight just becomes heavier. I’ve tried box squats, but the same problem occurs and I’m not really feeling them.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I feel like a complete pansy and would like to get into the 300’s and 400’s (and more ). My bench is still moving up and I reaally don’t want it to pass my legs.
Guess I should also note so that people have numbers to work with
Back Squat: 325
Front Squat: 275
I go ATG and get stuck right at parallel, so not the “hole,” but just above.
Thanks in advance to anyone that helps!
